[Update: Added tables outlining what types and quantities of games are available at each tier.]

As we’ve struggled to make sense of the new offerings, though, we’ve found ourselves wanting a more concise, readable summary that breaks down each tier of the new PlayStation Plus at a glance. And we figured if we wanted that kind of quick reference, some of our readers might, too.
So please enjoy this breakdown of the new PlayStation Plus, as clear and concise as we could make it without leaving anything important out. We’ll try to keep this post updated as Sony adds or clarifies new features.
The below tables outline the type and quantity of games available for download and/or streaming via the various PlayStation Plus subscription tiers. Downloadable games can be played on a PS4 (except for PS5 exclusives) or PS5. Streamable games can be streamed to a PS4, PS5 or PC.
Sony says Extra could eventually include access to “up to 400” titles from the PS4/PS5 while Premium will add access to an additional “up to 340” from classic systems.
All three tiers (including Essential) also include two specific downloadable games per month. The two higher tiers also include access to 27 games through Ubisoft+ Classics. See below for more info on both of those.
* – 19 PS4 games are available on PS5 only as part of the PlayStation Plus Collection
** – Sony has announced three PS5 exclusives and nine PS5 enhanced games for the higher PlayStation Plus tiers
